REDEMPTION DAY marks the feature film and directorial debut for Hicham Hajji, the first-ever Moroccan/Arab to write, produce and direct a major Hollywood feature film.
After being awarded the Medal of Honor for his bravery during a firefight against ISIS, U.S. Marine Captain Brad Paxton (Gary Dourdan) is suffering from the long-term effects of being in a war zone. In the care of his loving wife, Kate (Serinda Swan), Brad is trying to adjust to civilian life. When Kate, a renowned archeologist, is given a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity in Morocco, Brad urges her to follow it. When Kate arrives though, she is captured by a terrorist group who demands $10 million for her ransom. Brad rushes to Morocco where the U.S. ambassador (Andy Garcia) has ceased negotiating Kate's release after the deal jeopardizes United Nation's talks for future oil rights in the region. As the unusual circumstances of Kate's abduction are revealed, Brad is forced to use his military skills in a daring and deadly operation to find the men responsible and save the woman he loves.
